About Youri Vlag

The start of Limini Coffee

Youri Vlag is one of our food and drink retail sector experts and will be providing us with his many years of knowledge and expertise around the coffee industry including training, coffee roasting, blending and coffee shop expertise.

Limini Coffee is a small family run business started in March 2008 and managed by husband and wife, Youri and Samantha - Youri full time and Samantha contributing to the business from behind the scenes. Youri and Samantha now both work full time at Limini Coffee still with passion and commitment to customer service and delicious coffee.

Limini Coffee was started as a coffee wholesaler supplying speciality coffees to the coffee trade and as a training provider for people who were interested in learning more about coffee and who were toying with the idea of starting a coffee shop. We started running training courses on a daily basis and developed a course focusing on starting coffee shops. Nowadays we are running this 'How to start a coffee shop' almost daily and have been lucky enough to have helped many people with their startups.

A small passionate team

Limini Coffee is a friendly small team of passionate caring people who ensure that delicious freshly roasted coffee is being delivered daily throughout the UK. We like to keep the team small so you know who you are talking to on the phone. We aim to answer any enquiry the same day and do our best to ensure you are happy with our service.

New premises

Limini Coffee recently moved to new premises at Cleckheaton in West Yorkshire where they are now the proud owners of their own roastery.
